On Tuesday 11th July Mrs Rose and Miss Knight attended the North Herts Athletics Finals at Ridlins in Stevenage with their team of 47 children from across Years 2 – 6. It was a busy morning again consisting of track and field events. Thankfully the weather was perfect, cool and dry. We saw some excellent performances from all the children, with a few being commented on from other schools at how well they could run. We narrowly missed first place again this year but came in an excellent 2nd place. Well done team.

Key Steps Gymnastics - 27th February 2018
It was an early start for our gymnasts ( Miss Knight & Mrs Marcantonio included!) all the children arrived from 8am to get their hair plaited and ready for the competition on Tuesday 27th February. With 3 teams attending there were lots of nerves and excitement, a big thank you to Mrs Marcantonio, Mrs Manning-Rodao & Mrs Russell for helping with the 15 girls who needed their hair doing. Once the leotards were on and glitter applied, we made our way over to the Priory school. Once we were there we warmed up, found out our teams and got ready to compete, for both KS1 and KS2 the vault was up first. The Royals went first, followed by the Navys, both teams did very well, showing great posture and control for KS2, KS1 were at the other end of the Hall with Mrs Marcantonio, perfecting their pointed toes and big smiles. Next for the KS2 teams were the body management and Floor routines, each child performed individually and the scores were added up. KS1 were next to perform their floor routine, to the song #thatPower by will.i.am. the children performed brilliantly and tried their very best.
Over all out teams did very well, the KS1 Team came 2nd out of 8 schools, narrowly missing out on qualifying for the counties. KS2 Royals team came 6th out of 9 and the Navys came 1st, and qualified for the county finals on the 21st March. Special Mentions go to Dottie in Ks1, Isla H in the Royals, and Matteo for the Navys.
On Friday 7th July 2017 15 children from Year 1 – Year 4 attended the County Finals in Gymnastics at Oaklands College in St Albans. After an amazing opening ceremony where they got to watch a basketball trick player the children set off for the gymnastics arena. They were all excited and glittery and could not wait to get started. The morning started with KS1 performing. They warmed up and produced the best performance yet, all in time and with the music – unfortunately their outstanding routine was not enough to win but they did come in a celebratory 3rd place winning bronze medals and getting their photograph on the stage.
KS2 were in the afternoon, again they all performed some fantastic floor and vault pieces, with excellent body composition and control. They narrowly missed out on a medal place coming in 4th place – well done team.
A huge thank you to the parents for taking and supporting the children during the day, and a huge congratulations to all the children – we could not have been prouder of how you all represented the school.
On the 2nd May we took 22 children across to the Priory School for the Key StepsGymnastics Competition. It was a busy morning of children arriving at school from 8am to have their hair done and to have a final run through - especially for KS1 team who had to make changes to their routine last minute. All the children were excited as we left for the competition, and what an excellent competition it was. There was an exceptional standard of gymnastics performed by all schools, with some lovely performances. The results were brilliant - Key Stage 2 B team came 2nd, Key Stage 2 A team came 1st and are now going to county finals in July. Key Stage 1 did their best performance to date and came 1st too, another team through to County Finals. Well done teams!
